MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

'I am unaware of any textbook which provides such comprehensive coverage of the field and doubt that this work will be surpassed in the foreseeable future, if ever!'

From the foreword by Robert C. Moellering, Jr., M.D, Shields Warren-Mallinckrodt Professor of Medical Research, Harvard Medical School, USA

Kucers' The Use of Antibiotics is the leading major reference work in this vast and
rapidly developing field. More than doubled in length compared to the fifth edition, the
sixth edition comprises 3000 pages over 2-volumes in order to cover all new and existing therapies, and emerging drugs not yet fully licensed.

Concentrating on the treatment of infectious diseases, the content is divided into 4 sections: antibiotics, anti-fungal drugs, anti-parasitic drugs and anti-viral drugs, and is highly structured for ease of reference.Within each section, each chapter is structured to cover susceptibility, formulations and dosing (adult and paediatric), pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, toxicity and drug distribution, detailed discussion regarding clinical uses, a feature unique to this title.

Compiled by an expanded team of internationally renowned and respected editors, with
a vast number of contributors spanning Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, South America,
the US and Canada, the sixth edition adopts a truly global approach. It will remain
invaluable for anyone using antimicrobial agents in their clinical practice and provides in a systematic and concise manner all the information required when treating infections
requiring antimicrobial therapy.
